  • 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM: SWITCHING GEARS
    Featured Guests: Jill Ozovek & Dana Campbell
    "I don't even know what I'm qualified for anymore" is a common refrain as we start to think about next steps in our careers, or, more importantly, changing gears entirely. Jill and Dana will be tag-teaming to discuss the nitty gritty of switching careers, industry, and/or fields. They will cover the tactical and emotional steps to starting your new career journey in this ever-evolving working world in which we live covering topics such as: overcoming shame, getting clear on your values, redefining success and work/life integration, reclaiming your power at work & what it means to step into your own powerhouse, finding your calling, and breaking through fear. Our guests will show you how to carve your own unique career path and to help you fulfill your limitless potential.
     
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM: WORKSHOP: PUSHING WOMEN FORWARD IN THE WORK PLACE 
    Featured Guest: Sarah O'Brien Hammond

    In this workshop, Sarah will cover the importance of networking and surrounding yourself with the right people, balance (in both work and life!), self-care, recognizing, articulating, and creating your personal brand, and what we can gain from reviews in the work place. She will also demonstrate  how to arm ourselves to have the courageous conversations, discuss the difference between who people perceive you to be versus who you are, the value of nonverbal communication in the workplace, plus dig down deep into the mechanics of business etiquette, resume-building (and the importance of always having your resume updated), social media (highlighting LinkedIn), and key pointers for a successful interview.

  • 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM: WORKOUT & WORKSHOP: STRONG IS BEAUTIFUL 
    Speaker: Chelsea Aguiar

    Founder of AthayaFitness, Chelsea will teach a 30-minute full-body mobility and strength class that will incorporate movements via bodyweight, sliders, and resistance. This class will focus on mobilizing and activating your spine, joints, and muscles that will combine compound movements to not only strengthen but will provide the stability and mobilization to increase your durability through and after the workout. After class, Chelsea will sit down and speak with us about her career shift from long time dancer to personal trainer, where her passion for fitness was born, which later cultivated itself into a realm for female empowerment through strength. (sound familiar, Uplift-ers?!). #StrongIsBeautiful is a movement Chelsea created to bring women of diverse fitness backgrounds, together to advocate that strength comes in all forms and sizes. Sneakers required.

  • 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM: SCREENING: "DREAM, GIRL"
    Featured Guest: Erin Bagwell

    We know the names of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. But what about the female entrepreneurs? What’s their story? This amazing film will bring it  to us right at Uplift. From brand new startups to million dollar industries, it’s time we stop telling girls they can be anything they want to be and show them what it means to be a leader.

    Dream, Girl creator Erin Bagwell will be on hand to screen the film and answer all of our questions about art, filmmaking, and entrepreneurship.
